After I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 8, I can't create a wi-fi hotspot (using Virtual Wi-Fi Router). I get an error "the group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation" upon trying to create the hotspot.

Running Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit on HP ab032tx.


I've tried this way on Administrator: Command prompt:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240]

(c) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=AdHoc key=password

The hosted network mode has been set to allow.

The SSID of the hosted network has been successfully changed.

The user key passphrase of the hosted network has been successfully changed.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>netsh wlan start hostednetwork

The hosted network couldn't be started.

The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>

The possible cause for this problem is that "Virtual Wi-Fi Router" isn't supported on Windwos 10.

Have you tried it with other software or tools like ... alternativeto Virtual Wi-Fi Router

Also good to know is that you don't need any additional tools to create hotspot via Windwos 10. Here are simple steps how to create hotspot using using the windwos command promt.

The error:

The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

is shown if the wifi interface is disabled. Enable it to resolve the problem.
